The outfield is set with returner Richard Lile, a .275 hitter last season, in left; Parnow replacing graduated brother Charlie Parnow in center and Gomez in right. When Parnow pitches, Bostow will be in center field.

Casa Grande has two new coaches this year, adding Paul Kent and Sean Bigley to what is, in reality, more of a coaching family than a coaching staff. They will join hitting coach Ralph Gentile, pitching coach Danny Miller, field guru Carlos Perez and Dominic Wirtz, who functions almost as the team's general manager. Former Casa Grande pitching standout Spencer Finkbohner joins head coach Jim Selvitella on the junior varsity staff while Gary Dorsett continues working with the freshmen.

Last season, Casa Grande won an uncanny 14 games by a single run, including an unworldly nine in a row. Maytornea obviously doesn't expect a repeat, but he is optimistic about the Gauchos repeating as NBL champions. "We're all about pitching and defense," he says. "We will try to put our best defense on the field.

"We just want to keep improving."

If the Gauchos do that, it could be another huge season since they have already won their first six games."
